John 12:37 But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him:
When you are sharing about Christ, occasionally people will ask you things like, “If God is real, how is it He does not do this or that?” They want to see with their own eyes our God do something. What these people are really asking is, “Can I see a miracle?” The answer is a resounding, “YES.”
There is the miracle of this planet staying in orbit over all these many years. There is the marvel that not one person ever has just being flung off into outer space as the earth spins round and round. There is the miracle of a baby born and growing into a man or woman without science or anybody telling it how. The body just grows as God designed it to. There is the miracle of love in a world that promotes hate, violence, and death. However, if they really want to see the greatest miracle of all, ask them to fully trust in Jesus for what He already did on the cross of Calvary and what He is doing for them today in Heaven. Once they give themselves to God fully, they will witness the greatest miracle of all. It is the miracle of a changed heart. A life that was bound for Hell now has a home in Heaven. A life once filled with confusion and doubt, now filled with anticipations and expectation. What greater miracle could anyone ask for?
I guess the second-best miracle I can think of today, is that God would use someone like you and I to carry this all-important life changing message of salvation to someone who is lost in their sin. However, just as it was in Jesus’ days on earth, miracles do not really convince people. Even then, they would follow Him for the show, not out of true love. Still, God allows you and I, who were once lost just as they are, to carry this very precious and special message to them. Handle it with care as you share your faith in Christ. However, be sure to share your faith. That is why we are still here. To be seen by a lost world as God’s living miracles.
